Performing Arts

 

Students at Pope Francis Prep embrace an inspiring dedication to the performing arts. It is through the performing arts, that a curiosity for learning is cultivated and is ignited while discovering unknown talents.  With opportunities for acting, playing musical instruments or singing in the chorus, all students interested in performing are encouraged to pursue their passion. The Pope Francis Players put on two productions – a drama or comedy in the fall and a musical in the spring, and our Chorus presents a winter concert and sings at commencement.

 


Fall 2021 Events

 

The Pope Players present the murder mystery/comedy

The Plot, Like Gravy, Thickens

by Billy St. John

 

OVERVIEW
Great storm effects, spiffy costumes and lots of fun and mystery distinguish this work. Gathered on a stormy evening at Worthington Manor to celebrate Edward’s fiftieth birthday are his attractive wife, her brother, Edward’s befuddled older sister, his ex-wife and his daughter, a college student. Also present are his shady lawyer and his uptight business manager with his giddy wife and southern secretary as well as the butler, the housekeeper, the maid and the cook. Each has a motive that is barely established when the lights go out! Seconds later they come back on to reveal the knife for the birthday cake protruding from Edward’s back. In Act II, the police detective investigates, eventually allowing the audience to question or accuse suspects before the killer’s identity is revealed in a surprising climax.
